I guess I'm a worry wart but does any body else worry when you show a tractor that somebody will steal a hard to find part off of it. I was at the Midwest old thrashers this last friday and I believe I heard some one say over the loud speaker that the person who took the mag of the universal tractor should return it and no questions would be asked!

I'm gonna keep a chain on my H even at home. Someone just came into my carport and stole my riding mower. I've been out today to find a used mower to replace it......

Of course it's wrong to steal parts, deliberately scratch paint, etc. And not letting it out of your sight is also good.

But I totally disagree with not letting kids (or adults for that matter) sit on and play with the tractor controls as long as you are present and explain and watch. That is a great education for the kids especially. If you are that touchy about your machine then you should keep it at home in your storage, and/or you probably spent too much money and time on your fix-up/paint-up.

I'll tell ya, it never ceases to amaze me what some people will do. So someone stole the mag right off the tractor?? Wow. When I go to a show, I won't even touch someone else's machine without their permission. And parents that let their kids climb all over the machines - well, they just aren't doing their job IMHO.

I will not leave a tractor at a show for that very reason. When I leave, the tractor does also and I never let it out of my sight. I worry about paint getting scratched also. I cringe to see kids climbing on my tractors. Guess I would rest easier if I just left them at home in the shop. Guess I'm getting grouchy and paranoid in my old age. Very few people realize how much time and money you spend on these projects(or care).

Today's Featured Article - Product Review - by Staff. When we finally checked out the 3000 PSI North Star, the whole story chaned. This unit was equipped with an 11 HP Honda engine with fuel shutoff, adjustable flow and optional syphon degreaser dispenser. It didn't have a pressure release or electric start to facilitate easy starting but according to the instructions, simply pulling on the trigger while cranking was sufficient. This method of starting proved more than adequate and kept the cost down on the unit. It had all the important ... [Read Article]
